Waiting for water
We would like to thank the New Kensington Water Authority and the Allegheny Township Board of Supervisors for considering to provide water service to White Cloud, Melwood and Smail roads.
Extending water lines to this area is a major necessity, since many of these families are in dire need of water. Some families with children can't bathe at home and do laundry at relatives' homes or laundromats. They also buy bottled water for drinking.
We appreciate the positive response from the mailed surveys. To those who responded negatively — or did not respond at all: Don't these people realize having city water will increase their property value? We ask anyone who has not returned the survey to do so immediately. Also, owners of vacant lots need to list them on their surveys.
We appreciate the cooperation between the water authority and the supervisors with the hope that this project will move forward.
